Louisiana State District Judge Trudy White denied Titus Franklin’s request for bail in the face of accusations that he tried to smuggle drugs into the state penitentiary at Angola for rapper Lil Boosie.
Bail was denied after prosecutor Dana Cummings noted that Franklin has posted bail totaling nearly $450,000 in six drug cases in the past two years, according to local paper The Advocate.
“He’s spittin’ in the face of Lady Justice,’’ said Cummings to the judge. “He’s a danger to the community.’’
Boosie is currently awaiting trial on a first-degree murder charge in an alleged hired hit. He was indicted last month, and accused of trying to get codeine into the prison. He is currently being held without bail.
“He was given his chance again, and again, and again, and again — if that was enough agains,’’ she said.
